In recent months, the Latin American and Caribbean region has experienced a massive increase in the use of electronic payment operations, further consolidating a transcendental technological adoption that has now become a priority.
Walter Pimenta, Mastercard’s senior vice president of products and innovation for the region, assured that Latin America “is at a time of transcendental technological adoption, where secure and seamless payment options have become a priority.”
More than 40 million users have opened bank accounts in recent months and 50 million have made electronic payments. These estimates show that a great digital and financial inclusion has been captured in the demanding population, making it a priority.
